How to Use a DVD Player Without a Remote

Updated July 20, 2017

Though DVD players are most easily and conveniently controlled in conjunction with their accompanying remote control, it is not necessary in order to utilise their most basic functions.

Press the "Power" button on the front of the DVD player. Make sure that the TV attached to the player is on and tuned to receive the audio/video signal from the player.

Press the "Open/Close" or "Eject" button on the front of the player and place the DVD gently on the extended disc tray.

Press the "Open/Close" or "Eject" button. Depending on the disc, you will either see a menu screen come up or it will play automatically. If you see a menu screen, press the "Play" button to start the show.

Tip

Use the "Forward" and "Reverse" buttons to access the options on the DVD menu.
